Gợi ý:

Mai is my neighbor. She turned 16 recently and her mother held a birthday party for her. I was one of those invited.

The party began at about three in the afternoon. There were about twenty of us gathering in Mai’s house. She didn’t like having the party at a restaurant because it is noisy and expensive.

We gave presents to Mai and she happily opened them. It must really be exciting to receive all those presents. After that, Mai’s mother served us birthday cake and biscuits.

Finally at about six in the evening, the party came to an end. We were all tired. The parents of other children came to collect them by motorbikes.
